Chatfield Stables' experienced trail wranglers usher groups through Chatfield State Park's scenic prairie and forest trails, wending through the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Riders select a steed from a wide selection of equine trail guides, most of which were raised by the stables to suit riders with differing experienced levels. Each horse bears a unique name and personality, from sweet-tempered sorrels to shetland ponies with laser vision. Riders ages 7 and older are welcome to embark on the picturesque route, which affords views of the Platte River and other natural water features. Though helmets are not required, riders may rent noggin shields for $3 from Chatfield Stables and are advised to show up 30 minutes prior to ride time wearing sunscreen, lace-up shoes or boots, and their finest fringed chaps.
At Chatfield Stables, fifty horses roam the prairies at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and dedicated wranglers call to each of them by name, having known many of them since they were lanky and awkward foals. Wranglers organize an extensive schedule of programs and activities to ensure that all these horses receive healthy amounts of play and exercise. Programs include horse camps for riders as young as seven years old, with activities such as grooming, saddling, and riding. Wranglers also lead riding and horsemanship lessons, along with leisurely trail rides through miles of cottonwood groves and open prairie, which follow the Platte River where riders can enjoy the scenery and wildlife.
